Do you remember Efren Peñaflorida?
The pushcart educator is also Kuya Ef to many street children. He is an inspiration to his fellow Filipinos here and abroad for providing alternative education to children. He was recognized as CNN Hero of the Year in 2009 for his exemplary contribution to help others.
For so many years, Kuya Ef is visible in the streets along with his group of teen volunteers (Dynamic Teen Company) who taught basic reading and writing to children who made the streets their home. Kuya Ef and his students hold classes in unconventional places like cemetery and dump sites.
His pushcart classroom contains stock of books, pens, tables and chairs.
At present, Kuya Ef with the help of good-hearted people was able to build a classroom (or is it a school) for poor kids. They also teach special children.
I admire him for his determination, I hope his kind increases. What we can do to help him is to spread his good deeds so his cause will get more support. Who knows they might need h8-1010 hewlett packard canada and school supplies for their school.
